Reblogged From Boys Will Be Boys.
That's right, Boys Will Be Boys and what I love about my life is that I get to be here and watch them being boys.
Back a few years ago I didn't have this kind of freedom. I was running my own General Contracting business and doing very well. The problem was I was working 80 to 100 hours per week. I was making bank but never got to see my kids or spend any time with my wife.
We were not living the life we would have chosen for ourselves.
We planned to raise our own kids, make our own mistakes.
We wanted to know our kids.
To look at them and just be able to see the little mirrors of us they would become and not the mirrors of someone we paid to raise them.
So we did something drastic. We got into a home based business. My wife, Kelli did actually. One day Kelli found a great business to get into and she did. She didn’t call me to check. She didn’t ask me if it was a good idea. She just pulled out her credit card and got started.
Three or four days later she told me about it. It’s funny, I asked her why she didn’t talk with me before she did it? Kelli said, “I was afraid you would have some really good reasons not to do it and I listen and not do this. She said she couldn’t let that happen, because this business was gong to bring me home where I belonged, with her and the boys.
Well, what could I say? With tears in my eyes and love in my heart, I said, “you go girl, bring me home.”
Three months later I sat down with her and few partners and looked at what she got into and BANG!!! I knew she was right. I at that moment said, I want to do this with you. To make a long story short, about a year later we walked away from my contracting business and never looked back.
We built a great team and had a lot of fun living and working from the ranch and hanging out with the kids. That’s when it hit us. Let’s hit the road.
We sold our Los Angeles properties.
We sold all our things, mostly antiques. We figured we could buy new old stuff later, right?
We do love old stuff, so we bough a converted 1957 Greyhound Bus, filled it with what we wanted to take with us and hit the road. Everything we had was on the bus or in a 5X5 foot storage bin in Utah.
That was about 3 years ago. We have been around a lot of this country and our family has grown together in ways we never would have dreams.
We home school our kids, we like to call in UnSchooling. Every morning I wake up and I get to be with my kids. When they are done with unschool and we are done with our short work day at home, it’s off to the pool, hike, beach, bike ride, rollercoaster and wherever else we feel like going.
It hasn’t all been easy but it has all been rewarding.
We live the life we chose and our kids understand what it means to have two parents and follow your heart, your dreams.
We are now planning on heading back out west early next year. We are going to set up a US based place to call home that the boys can have roots in. Then we plan to travel internationally for a good 5 months of the year and really see this world. For me Happiness=Excitement.
It’s funny though, when we tell people what we are doing, a lot of them say, “I’ve always wanted to do that.” My standard answer is, “well, you ain’t dead yet.” That is usually followed by the same hundred or so reasons they could never do it at this point. Their JOB, their Mortgage, Car Payment, Kids, Family Ties, The Money They make, Why People would think I was crazy, and so many more reasons. What’s funny is that most of the reasons they give for why they can’t are the very reasons we have why we did.
So, now let’s get down to the brass tacks.
Are you happy, really happy doing what you do? I believe we should build our life and then fit what we do to fund it into it and not the other way around.
Or are you like 80% of the people in this country and hate what they do?
Take back your life and stop being a slave to someone else’s.
